Book review: George Milne, Cat Detective, by Roddy Murray

From time to time I take a punt on an author who is completely unknown to me, and what a delightful surprise this one was.

George Milne is the most humdrum individual alive. Completely lacking anything approaching initiative, he drifts through life like water, trickling down the path of least resistance, until a hilariously improbably sequence of events supervenes, forcing George farther and farther away from his comfort zone.

Reminiscent of Tom Sharpe at his best, this book was one of the most sheerly entertaining I have read this year. The writing is not particularly polished but is solidly competent, and the extraordinary cast of characters are all beautifully drawn. I laughed out loud many, many times while reading it.

George Milne, Cat Detective is available from Amazon in both Kindle and paperback editions.

If you enjoy a good laugh, check out my new romantic comedy novella, which will release on 11 December. You can preorder it  HERE.
